    In this episode, Fred sits down with Gary Lavergne to discuss one of the first widely documented incidents... the 1966 University of Texas shooting rampage of Charles Whitman.

    Gary is the author of "A Sniper in the Tower" which according to a 2007 Associated Press article is "considered the definitive account of the massacre" and to The New York Times as "the authoritative account of the Whitman case".

Excellent podcast “A Sniper in the Tower”

This review is written so that there are absolutely no misunderstandings concerning the content of my message.

Mr. Gary Lavergne depicted the events as they transpired in an eye opening awareness of the gravity of the situation as if it were in live time. Mr. Fred Burton was exceptional in asking situational questions of the event that continued to enhance the awareness of the tragedy that happened on that day and the lead up beforehand.

I truly look forward of more to come from The Ontic Protective Intelligence Podcast.
